Whenever my husband sees pork chops on the menu, he orders them. And often he is disappointed when they are tough or dry or both. So when we read reviews that Trattoria Ruggero had an excellent chop, we decided to go even though our apartment was on the opposite side of town. It was worth it! He declared it was... More

First of all, you must book as it's a small and very popular restaurant, although a bit out of the way on the Siena road outside the Porta Romana. very happy discovery. We had a HUGE meal (portion sizes are generous, in future we'd share a starter) of green chicory and anchovy salad (me) and asparagus tagliatell (partner) The latter... More

We stayed just up the road and went here on our last night. Wish we had went on our first night as the meal was superb. The best pork chops we've ever had! Our waiter was fantastic and spoke brilliant English. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone in the area.

As they told us, they are "Antico" style. Typical food, local one, simple one, good one. Good spot to have a simple and tasty break and enjoy the moment with some friends or family. A 4 and not a 5 because prices are a bit expensive and desserts are not at the level of the rest.

Was recommended to us by a local, we were positively surprised. Excellent, proper Italian food at great price (wine too). No tourists there - staff spoke no English - a rare thing in overcrowded Florence.

This was our favorite new find on our last trip to Florence. Both of the pastas we ordered- a pasta with white truffles and one with spicy noodles were fantastic and tasted like home cooking (in the best sense) The restaurant was a little out of the way and the service was a bit gruff, but we loved the food...

We came in for a late dinner on our last night in Florence. We were sat immediately but the place filled up very quickly. Our server (Ian I think his name was) was incredible. For dinner I ordered the pork chop and my wife ordered the roast beef. Both meals were delicious. I particularly enjoyed the seasoning on the pork... More
